    Be glad to help.
    RO and RO/DI can be confusing but the one thing that sticks out to me is you almost always ge twhat you pay for with RO and especially RO/DI systems. What appears to be a fantastic deal on the surface ends up being quite the opposite. I will spend some time on this forum helping you to understand the "buzz words" and the traps you can fall in to and how to avoid them and to help you make a more informed purchase.
